    Growing up, I always felt different, alone in some way. I had so many questions about who I was, why I was here. And all that changed when I met him. He taught me so many things about my homeworld, about my family, about myself. But the greatest thing he ever did for me, is just be my dad.
    Kal-El on Jor-El[src]

    Jor-El was a respected scientist on Krypton and the father of Kal-El, later known as Superman.

    Biography[edit | hide | hide all]

    Destruction of Krypton[edit | hide]

    At some point, Jor-El was aware of the slow destruction of Krypton and warned the residents. However, they did not listen and led to the planet's dismay. During the destruction, Jor-El sent his son, Kal-El, to Earth through an escape pod.[1]

    A.I.[edit | hide]

    Prior to Krypton's destruction, Jor-El uploaded his consciousness into a Sunstone Crystal and placed it in the pod, allowing a grown up Kal-El to find and learn about his heritage.[3]

    Later, Kal-El found the Fortress of Solitude and talked to his father's A.I. consciousness. Kal-El soon returned regularly to seek wisdom as the vigilante, Superman.

    Grandson[edit | hide]

    In 2020, Jor-El was once approached by Kal-El after realizing Jordan Kent's powers emerged. However, Jor-El informed Kal that the powers might be a special event and would not happen again due to his scan of Jordan's body revealing his Human genetics inhibited his power of absorbing solar energy.[1]

    When Jordan's super hearing started emerging, Kal took him to the Fortress of Solitude and Jor-El inspected his body, telling Kal that Jordan needed to be trained like he himself did.[4][5] Days later, Kal brought Jordan to the Fortress after both of them were infected with a Synthetic Kryptonite Gas. Jor-El informed him that he needed to use immense heat to burn the Kryptonite out of Jordan's respiratory system before his lungs completely freezes.[6]
